What is Glide?

Glide is fundamentally a front-end tool that enables rapid application development. It allows you to easily import or link your existing data to tools like Airtable, Google Sheets, and other similar platforms.

How We Choose Our Data Source in Glide

Glide offers a choice of multiple data sources, including external links such as Airtable and Glide's own tables, including Regular and Big tables. Here are some considerations:

External Data Source (e.g., Airtable) 

Advantages: Less dependent on Glide; easy to switch to other tools; the ability to build multiple applications on one data source.
Disadvantages: Synchronization is not always immediately visible. This can be an important consideration in your choice.

Glide Regular Tables 

Advantages: Excellent performance, visible in real-time updates.
Disadvantages: Performance decreases with larger tables, especially with many rows, columns, and certain data types. Using the 'query' field type can slow down the table.

Glide Big Tables

Advantages: Suitable for large amounts of data (up to 1 million rows); efficient in using queries via API.
Disadvantages: Limitations in instant data updates; filtering on relational data does not always work.


Glide offers a powerful set of capabilities, but like any tool, there are considerations to keep in mind. These considerations are crucial for successfully integrating Glide into your digital strategy. At Codeless Factory, we are ready to assist you and share our experiences, so you can get the most out of Glide and other No-code tools.
